Style Week OC kicked off last week at the Fashion Island Shopping Center in Newport Beach with Neiman Marcus' The Art of Fashion - 20 Years Fashion Show. Guests were greeted with a pair of wayfarer sunglasses to wear, ice cold San Pellegrino to hydrate, and paper fans to stay cool. The show highlighted autumn/winter looks from Neiman Marcus and ranged from casual glam to evening wear. Although Southern California lacks actual seasons (fitting that it was a total heatwave and humidity central during the show, instead of the usual cool down for fall), I always enjoy seeing premier designs in outerwear, fur and leather pieces, boots, knits, and sweaters. Some of the trends from the runway that caught my eye included graphic prints, intricate embroidery, vibrant prints, and an opulent color palette.
